MARGARITA ISLAND

linea


Location:

On the Caribbean Sea, 24 miles from the mainland (Venezuela), just north of Cumaná, in the state of Sucre.

Language:

Area:
The island has a territory of 332 square miles. Margarita is larger than Aruba, Curacao and Bonaire altogether.

Population:
The population of Margarita is approximately 400.000 people.

Public Hospitals:
There are more than 30 dispensaries and hospitals totally free of charge and equipment with all the medical supplies to cover any urgency.

Airports:
Aeropuerto Internacional Santiago Mariño, in El Yaque.

Airlines:

Most domestic and foreign airlines transit the Margarita airport. Avensa, Aeropostal, Laser, Aserca, Lai, Santa Barbara, Aereotuy, Air Venezuela, Air Aruba and charter companies from North America and Europe.

Transportation:
The commercial center of the island is a great place to walk, because it has nice stores, restaurants, street stands and buildings in general. Even though the island is not that big, you will need a mean of transportation to work your way around it. All hotels of 3 or more stars have their own cab companies, as do malls such as the Jumbo, AB, CCM, Central Madeirense and others. There is also a well organized, rather picturesque mini-bus system, but you must know the lines and trails. Another good choice is to rent a car or 4 wheeler to discover Margarita in your own personal way. All nice options, you need only pick the one that best satisfy your needs.

Taxes:
Margarita is a duty free zone, therefore, you won't pay any taxes. To leave the airport to a domestic destination you must pay a fee that ranges between VEB 16.000. International departure tax: USD22.

Documents needed:
You must have a valid passport and airplane ticket to enter the country. You do not need to worry about vaccinations or specific health recommendations, since Venezuela is a country with good health standards.
